I'm Broken!

For a long time now i had been suffering from heal spurs on my right foot. Finally decided that the pain was more than the fear of getting the shot in the foot. Mind you that i am not afraid of needles at all, but in the foot gave me the willies. Well in a couple days i could tell a major difference in walking without as much pain as i had been. Thank God! Sunday i got up to do my first day on the bowling league and all of a sudden i got a sharp pain in my butt that radiated up to my back. I knew what just happened, my butt muscle gave out causing major pain in my back, i layed all day long on the couch. I was not able to sit, stand, walk, do anything at all! I even called into work and that is not like me at all!!! Thankfully my boss was able to cover it for me. I would never had made it!

Monday i saw my doctor and got another shot, this one in the hip and i can say that i am doing alot better, but still sore! I'm able to make it thru work and that's all i care about! But after work i am drugging myself up like crazy! So while i was with the doctor he said that he was going to call me that night anyways because he got the results of my tests that i took on Thursday. Not good news at all, apparently i have to go back on insulin for my diabetes. I had been on it with both my kids, so i know what's involved. The hardest part is poking yourself!

So you see.....I'm broken!!
If i had a reciept i would take myself back for a

Well, the drugs are kicking in and i am getting sleeping.. gnight!

I wish you so much luck with the diabetes. My mother was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 36. She is a terrible diabetic. As a matter of a fact, she was taken to the hospital just the other day because her sugar dropped to 24! Please take care of yourself and do everything the doctor tells you. Hopefully if all goes well, you will be able to go off the insulin again sometime real soon. I would hate to see you have to live through diabetes like my mother does. I always check my sugar whenever I'm home for a visit. I'll keep you in my prayers!

well, it could be worse, really. you ren't broken, just a little dented. my freind was diagnosed diabetic at 5 years of age. he is in his very late 50s now, and although he has been "on the needle" his whole life, his quality of life is no different than mine. take good care of yourself!
